The provincial government has announced $35,000 in funding to help adult learners and displaced workers develop skills for a career in the textile computing industry.
They say the cash will be used to help launch a micro-credentials program to help people rapidly obtain the skills they need to work at an Ontario company specializing in textile computing.
The programs will be offered through OCAD University and Myant Inc.
“We have heard loud and clear about the gap between employers, like Myant, that cannot find candidates with the right skills and the many Ontarians looking for meaningful employment,” said Ross Romano, Minister of Colleges and Universities. “By working together, we can create flexible and responsive programing that meets the needs of employers and ensures that Ontarians can learn a new skill, to help them better succeed in their careers.”
